    So I have a old Peavey Renown 400, It was loud with the scorpions but very sketchy. It would change vol on its own, pop crack hiss n make noises I dont know how to describe,,lol. I think at sometime it has been wet.

    I took the speakers out n put them in a 4x12 I had till I recovered it and put new speakers in it. They are in a box now.

    I was tired of the amp being in the way and unusable so I turned it into a cab.
    Also some of you can answer this , Can I do anything with the reverb that was in it?

    Why do you have all those loopers?

    Looks great!

    The old reverb tank? Check the model number and see if you can keep it as a spare.

    Otherwise sell it. Tanks crap out. New Accutronics are made differently so people still look for the old ones.

    Find a diy reverb tank project.

    Sorry , plates the bag that was in the amp. Can I make a reverb pedal i know a big one lol or something out of it, reuse.

    Its what I do ... Lol

    They are full ... full of different backing tracks, some have the same ones as they have all migrated to the same place.

    Mostly blues swing jazz lounge country punk surf rock ect. in different keys. Some from Boss tone studio themselves and youtube mostly youtube.

    Then I will also play a lil rhythm on it then play over it.

    I know no songs ...no songs... buy artist
    Well 1 song. The Super Suckers "Pretty ------ --". Then I jusy play lead over that.

    I forgot I can play "Black Magic Woman" also ,lol ... Ok there may be a few more but not many.

    The only songs I do play I wrote myself and then........ I play over that.

    I dont hang out with alot of people, only 1 plays guitar. If I go to a his place I just take one.

    I know it doesnt make me much of a guitar player (MY words and My own opinion of self judgment ) but I can migrate from one end of the board to the other pretty well with fair speed when required and most of all I enjoy it.

    Its like having friends in a box who play music and dont ask you to help them move.
    I think they look like this

    I could be talked into helping them move.

    That is a lot of loopers, Lol

    The reverb is part of the amp, separating it is a huge undertaking. Best to sell it for parts.

    The cab looks cool, great job. What year is that Falcon emblem from? I’m assuming it’s from a Ford Falcon.
